#TheObsessions — Xie Hui of StoneforGold Shares His Favourite Things
1. H.R. Giger:
One of the world’s leading artists of fantastic realism. His art and design, which is filled with surrealist biomechanical dreamscapes, continue to inspire me in many aspects of my work and life.



2. The Modular:
A universal scale of proportions created by Le Corbusier as well as its accompanying concept of harmony has influenced my way of thinking as well.



3. Fight Club:
Directed by David Fincher, the absence of human touch in the camera movement draws me deeper into the objectivity of the scene. The sheer maniacal perfectionism he demands has allowed me to learn the value of perfectionism.

5. Motorcycles:
Being a motorcycle aficionado, I am deeply interested in all kinds of bikes. Riding a motorcycle gives me an immense sense of freedom and enjoyment. The motorcycle’s streamlined form is further complemented by the rider’s personal style which enhances its overall visual appeal.
